The Very Rev Dr John Chalmers examines the story of the birth of Christ.

EVERY congregation has its own way of celebrating the story of Christ’s birth.

Mostly this involves children wearing tea towels and dressing gowns and cardboard crowns. A Gabriel is given pride of place in the pulpit and every child under the age of ive is an angel for the day. The bigger children get to present the three small packages representing gold, frankincense and myrrh, any number of woolly sheep are piled up against a makeshift manger and all of this is to the great delight of mums and dads and grannies and grandpas.
